"Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive" - Sir Walter Scott

Dear Reader, you're probably too young to remember the old details,
heck, I'm starting to forget about the new details, just shadows now.

Bill Bennett (the Premier) decided to have Expo 86

Gordon Campbell decided to continue on with the Olympics 2010

Bill decided to build the Coquihalla, Bill's brother bought the land, just before, construction began

Gordon sold BC Rail, used US$166m to upgrade S2S,  Gordon's aides pocketed small change Via BC Rail

Bill, and his older brother Russell (Bennett) and Doman (Scandal) lost $1 million, eleven year later

Gordon's HST let his popularity sink, BC Rail trial needed to be stopped in a blink, cost $6 million, seven years later

Bill resigned, Bridge named after him, by Gordon

Gordon resigned, but not before cutting/uncutting a 15% personal income tax break

                                  Bill's successor was Bill Vander Zalm

Gordon #1 enemy till the end of February Bill Vander Zalm

Thanks for the memories, NVG.

There's an ancient quotation about the necessity of remembering history or else ... or else we'll find ourselves repeating it.
